Growing basil in Houston can be achieved in a couple of ways, including by installing a roof and growing outside in a greenhouse, said Richard Gaudiano, who has worked in the city for the past 18 years and owns an architectural firm.
A roof can be added as an optional step, he said, but it is not required.
“You can grow a garden outside in an urban environment,” he said.
Gaudiere said the biggest problem for basil growers in Houston is that there are no gardens.
There are no urban gardens in Houston.
In some neighborhoods, he noted, the city is trying to improve the urban fabric of neighborhoods.
“There are some neighborhoods that are getting pretty close,” he added.
“We don’t have a lot of space in these neighborhoods to plant, and we don’t know what the long-term impact of that will be.”
Growing basil outdoors The best way to grow basil indoors is with a roof, Gaudieris said.
“If you have a roof over the garden, it can be grown outdoors,” he explained.
If the garden is located outside, it should be placed on a raised bed or planted on an island, he explained, adding that if you plant a tree on top of the garden you can plant it at night and then the basil will not be exposed to sunlight for much longer.
A garden like that can be set up with a few small containers and water or fertilizer, and it can also be watered and fertilized, Gaultieris explained.
“It’s pretty simple,” he noted.
“In Houston, you can put a garden in a city park or in a park near the city center, but you need a lot more space.”
He said it would be wise to start with a small, one-acre plot of land, and then work your way up to an acre or two.
“Once you’re getting your first crop, you’ll probably want to expand to larger plots,” Gaudiestos said.
Growing basil outside will be a bit more challenging, but Gaudieres said that the easiest way to do it is by planting a tree in your backyard.
“When you have your first garden, you need to find a tree that is close to your house and will produce your basil,” he continued.
“That’s where you can start with.”
A garden should not be too large or too small to fit in the back yard, Gautieris advised.
“Your backyard is your backyard,” he advised.
Gautiestos recommended that if your city has a garden park or garden center, that you take the basil plants and plant them in the center of the yard.
“Then you can just plant your basil trees wherever you want,” he suggested.
Growing in a garden garden is a good way to get the basil outdoors for a few years, Gontieris noted.
It can also produce basil for later use in a more urban environment.
Growing indoors to produce basil in a community garden “is an interesting idea, but not a reality,” he concluded.
“I think it is important to remember that you will need some space and that there is a time limit.
It takes a little time, but once you are growing basil in your yard, it’s a lot easier to have that basil outside.”
Growing outdoors to grow in a backyard The best method to grow indoors is to plant a garden or a garden center in the backyard.
Gaultiestos suggested that if the community garden is in a public park, you could use a large orchard.
“The best way of growing basil outdoors is to grow outside and put your basil tree in the garden,” he stated.
“And you can also plant a plant in the yard, which will give you some space.
But if you are planting your basil in the community gardens, then you need some other space for your basil.
And the next thing you want to do is to build your garden in your own backyard, so that you have the opportunity to plant basil trees in your garden.”
If you are looking for more information about growing basil indoors, you should consult the City of Houston’s gardening website.
The website also provides information about the different types of basil, how to care for them, and how to grow them.
Growing outdoors: Growing basil inside The easiest way of doing basil indoors in Houston would be to grow a few plants in your garage or a backyard, Goutieris suggested.
“But you don’t need to do that,” he acknowledged.
“Because you already have basil in you yard, you don`t need to grow more plants in the neighborhood.”
Goutiestos pointed out that basil plants are very good for landscaping, but he said that they need more space and care.
“So if you want a garden, but there are too many basil trees, then I think you need another place to grow your basil plants,” he cautioned.
